'I tried to sign Lewandowski but he was always going to Bayern' - Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has admitted he tried to sign Robert Lewandowski before he quit Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski signed a five year contract with the European champions on Saturday and will officially join Pep Guardiola’s team on a five year contract on July 1.

Wenger admitted he tried to sign the Poland striker, but was told he had already committed his long-term future to the Allianz-Arena.

The Arsenal manager said: ‘Yes we looked into Lewandowski but honestly he signed for Bayern one and a half years ago, everyone knows that.

‘They can only make it official now because he is in the last six months of his contract.

‘We are like everyone, we look out there and see what is happening. If an opportunity turns up, you know as well that all the big players are at big clubs at the moment and they go for important targets.

'Unless you have a club in a desperate financial situation it will be difficult.

'If we find someone like Gnabry at that age when noone knows them, then maybe. But I just said many times we don’t rule anything out.'

Wenger also admitted he has an interest in Bayern striker Mario Mandzukic, but the Germans insist they will not sell.

Wenger said: ‘Lewandowski is at Dortmund until the end of the season and they will not sell Mandzukic now - maybe at the end of the season.’
